The above link is to a Go Fund Me set up for a young man by the name of Darin McMahon.
Darin was terribly injured (paralyzed neck down) in a firearms training course accident. He was accidentally shot in the neck, point blank range, and his life, just a few short months ago has been altered forever.
Aside from his horrific injury, his wife and two young children have been taxed to their limits. His home requires handicap modification, he needs a transport vehicle, they have a mortgage and an insurmountable financial need.
I have never had the occasion to meet this young man but have been following his story as he and his wife are friends of my Office Administrator. She has kept me informed, I have donated to his Go Fund Me.
My interest, aside from seeing him get as better as he can, hoping for any nerve, muscle, and physical movement, is that as a USCCA long time member, a consistent student in firearms training, and a CCW holder in Florida, I can stir some additional support for this young family.
Any one who visits the above link, can see the McMahons and perhaps feel inclined to help. His plight could have been any one of us! As much as we train, as much as we exercise proper gun handing and safety, accidents can happen.
My heart goes out to he, his family, and to the instructor who made the life-changing mistake.
